Fifth human foot found in Canada

A few weeks ago officials found a severed foot, the fourth in eight months. Now a fifth foot has been found.

A human foot has been found on a beach near the west-coast city of Vancouver, Canadian police say. It is the fifth human foot to wash up on beaches in the area in the past year. The latest find is a left foot, whereas the other four were right feet. Walkers spotted the body part floating in water off the suburb of Westham Island in British Columbia on Monday.

Police and coroners are trying to identify the foot and discover if it is linked to the others found in the area. All were wearing shoes and had been in the water for some time. A police spokesman, PC Sharlene Brooks, said the find was being treated as a criminal investigation. (Link)
